Migration | Helping dreams become reality

Helping hundreds of people achieve life-changing dreams is what Carol Shipway does best.

The owner of Carol Shipway Migration Services is an expert in knowing and navigating through the varied visa pathways for people who want to work, visit and live in Australia.

After 21 years in the industry, Carol has a wealth of experience and comprehensive knowledge of the best pathway for each individual client. As well, Carol and her team assist clients in every step of the complex immigration process.

“We love being able to help clients achieve their immigration dreams,” said Carol, who holds a Bachelor of Social Sciences, has been a Registered Migration Agent since 1996 and is a member of the Migration Institute of Australia.

Whether people are applying for an employer sponsored visa, a partner, parent or child visa, a professional skilled visa, or a student visa, Carol and her team are the experts.

They will advise and prepare all relevant evidence and liaise with the Department of Immigration and Border Protection on their client’s behalf until the application is finalised. They also help clients to settle into Australia by providing advice and referrals to service providers. They can also assist at the Administrative Appeals Tribunal and advocating for Ministerial Intervention.

As well as being highly skilled, Carol and her team undergo continual professional development to keep up to date on the changing immigration laws, including new changes coming in March 2018 to the employer-sponsored and skilled independent visa programs.

“It is very important that people seek the right advice from a registered migration agent as the Department Of Immigration does not offer consulting services,” Carol said.

Carol loves her job and helping people.

“I really enjoy meeting people from all over the world and learning about their cultures” Carol said. “And I just love it when they achieve a happy outcome.”
